A good day as to weather. Plenty of snow on the groun. The children Henry and Edna went to school. Jim and Ben went to Renan. They walked. John come to see us tonight. I am glad that he came. Heard that Kate is getting on well they think. Jack Harvey is at home to see his mother. Nellie made the baby a dress today and done the cooking. Julia's children are sick and Jack Junior is sick.
